The river is a great attraction in the city but could be so much more. On our trip we saw very little river activity and it could be another river Thames, if the investment was there..

The Foyle is a wide meandering river that flows into the Foyle Sea Lough. It is well managed and has its own rescue service. A dander across the peace bridge to the old barracks is an excellent way to get your bearings on the City and its 400 year old walls.

A big impressive river. Walk alongside it and go over the Peace Bridge. Always good to be alongside water.

The walkway along the Foyle is wonderful - great views of the city and Peace Bridge and lots of cafes and restaurants as well as people jogging, power-walking and cycling.

Great to walk along the river on city centre side. If you want, you can walk a long tour starting in the city centre, over the Peace-Bridge and along the river to the north to the next brigde. Back along the river through a nice park and back to the city centre. Also possible to do a boat trip.
